Today please join us in prayer as we remember those communities living in poverty around the world and especially those who do not have access to a nearby safe water supply. We remember Abdella and his community in Ethiopia who must walk for many hours to collect water each day. We have online Stations of the Cross at 11am every Friday during Lent so please join us click here to register.
This Lent will be particularly hard for many families because of lockdown. We have all missed the things we enjoy doing: – going out for a meal, drinks with friends, going to the cinema, theatre, concert, or a football match, even a haircut! So, this Lent instead of giving something up why not donate the money you would have spent on these activities to CAFOD’s Lent Appeal.
£10 can buy sturdy water containers so families can store water safely.
£40 can bring safe drinking water to a hard-to-reach school.
£198 could buy bikes for a team of three water engineers to service water pumps in remote communities.
£750 can give a community water supply.
